Programs written on my HP pc w/ 1 gig Athlon running WindowsXP, your mileage may vary (code is time-corrected)
Graphics must be smooth and fluid for effect! Turn off other apps if performance is jerky.
Once running, press the ? key for on-screen help, there are plenty of controls to play with!
If apps run slowly, try "f" for Fullscreen/Window toggle, shift < to reduce tesselation, or [ to reduce object size if applicable.
Some of the apps look better from 10 to 20 feet away (PlasmaZ, PinZ...)
